Congratulations to Jan Vogelsang for being awarded the Friedrich-Hirzebruch price of the Studienstiftung des Deutschen Volkes for his PhD thesis! Jan defended his PhD thesis in October 2017. He developed a novel ultrafast point-projection electron microscope in our research group. Here you can find the press release of the university, and here you can watch a 3-minute long video, where Jan presents himself and his work.
Germann Hergert has received the “Applied Photonics Award“ of the Fraunhofer-Institut für Angewandte Optik und Feinmechanik IOF. The price is awarded for outstanding theses that are prepared on a topic of applied optics. Germann has received the price for his Master thesis „Ultrakurzzeit-Punktprojektions-Elektronenmikroskopie“, which he finalized in our research group in June 2018. Here you can find the university's press release.
The „Ultrafast Nano-Optics“ group (www.uol.de/uno) at the Faculty V - Mathematics and Natural Sciences - of the University of Oldenburg invites applications for one

Impressions from the first "Iraqi-German Winter School on Nanophotonics" that took place on Dezember 8th and 9th in Delmenhorst.
Im Rahmen dieser Masterarbeit soll die Simulationssoftware "FDTD Solution" von Lumerical eingesetzt werden, um die Wechselwirkung von Licht mit plasmonischen Strukturen zu verstehen und um neuartige, effiziente plasmonische Baulemente zu entwickeln.

At the international conference „SPIE Photonics West“ a member of our group, Dr. Martin Silies was awarded the "Best Paper Award" within the sub-conference „Advanced Fabrication Technologies for Micro/Nano Optics and Photonics IX“.
The price was donated by Nanoscribe GmbH, a german company specialized on printing three-dimensional structures on the micrometer and sub-micrometer scale.
Within his work, Martin Silies used new lithography technqiues, a combination of Helium and Gallium ion beam milling to fabricate metallic nanostructures with sub-10 nanometer feature size.
He and his colleague want to implement these structures to built an ultrafast plasmonic transistor funded the German Ministry of Science and Education. These transistors are capable of significantly increasing the switching speed compared to conventional electronic transistors.
At April, 1st 2015, the Junior Research Group from Martin Silies will start its activity within the Ultrafast Nano-Optics group. The research project will be funded by the Germany Ministry of Science and Technology within the program "NanoMatFutur". Whithin the next four years, Martin Silies and his group members will be working on the interaction of femtosecond light pulses with nanometer-sized, precisely-fabriacted plasmonic nanostructures. Their goal will be the development of an all-optical transistor capable of ultrafast, sub-picosecond switiching.
Very recently, a crew from Beilstein TV was shooting videos about the work in our laboratories. Beilstein TV was founded by the Beilstein Institute and presents short videos about the scientific work of researchers in Germany from all field of research. Here you can find links to the videos that were shot in the last weeks about our research on the interaction of ultrashort light pulses with matter.
